Potato Heart

© Eva van Beek, 2020

Kindly put that deceit away
There’s no where to march
And no one to blame

We blindfolded ourselves
To conquer the sea
We cheated our hearts
To laugh at kismet
We lied to our soul
To make it believe

Kindly put that disgust away
There’s no where to march
And no one to blame

We imprisoned ourselves
To desire and greed,
We broke our hearts
On trivial bauble
And sold our souls
To jewels of dirt

Kindly put that scorn away
There’s no where to march
And no one to blame

We have rendered our minds
To woeful neglect
We left our hearts
To dry like potatoes
And declared our souls
a tale of the past

Kindly note our nature’s requital
There’s nothing but love
to safe our existence
